The Steering Committee and the judges cohort acknowledge that FeedbackFruits pedagogical tools successfully help optimizing course design for all higher education's educators.”
The Steering Committee further commended FeedbackFruits Automated Feedback “for leveraging artificial intelligence with a unique approach to improve students’ learning outcomes and teaching delivery.”

The shortlisted entries demonstrate innovation, versatility, and effectiveness in promoting impactful, collaboration-based pedagogical approaches and solving the problems that prevent optimal learning.
